I opened up an oppy carb and it was full of white powdery flakes from having water in it for years, once i cleaned it a couple times it ran fine tho, i think it was a 4 bolt carb cause it didnt have adjustment screws like the older ones do.


I really like the looks of this little tractor .

at first I thought the motor was floating in that picture! Isn't the wheel horse a horizontal shaft?

I usually have to use an air impact hammer. The bottom pulley is always trashed when I do though, but it comes off

A good puller.

If you want to save the pulley, you will need to be more patient. If it doesnt slide off, or if you see it start to mangle the pulley back it off. If you have one of those small handheld propane torches that will work. Put the fire to it for about a minute or so. Spray some liquid wrench on it, not all over the thing, just where its needed. In the keyway and around the seams. Let it soak in for a while. Come back a bit later and put the fire to it again, then liquid wrench, then, go watch some Red Green on youtube.  Simplicity Mouse - Page 3 2664539216  When thats over, do the process all over again. After 3 or 4 times try the puller again.

Now, when you got to put any pulley back on any shaft, or hubs or whatever... put some anti-seize on the shaft!
Makes it loads easier when you, or the next guy has to take it off. Simplicity Mouse - Page 3 2731072446

My procedure is as follows

Remove bolt
Find a spot on the lower pulley I can get at the right angle
Pull the trigger and hammer away.

This will destroy the pulley stack, but since I never use them I don’t care. You might though. If you’re more patient and want to keep the stack, do what Beal said

I usually use an impact gun to remove the bolt because then I don’t have to worry about keeping the crankshaft from spinning. I agree with these guys if you don’t want to save the pulley you can remove it in minutes or you can take your time and let is soak in penetrating oil and try to save it. I use the two or three jaw pullers too.

If you've got the motor out, it's a good time to pressure wash the frame, just sayin haha.

I've never had a problem with engine pulleys. Trans pulleys, however, are a different story lol!

Yeah i got the pulley off and motor out, then sprayed down the frame with some wally mart engine degreaser stuff. Im excited to drive this thing with the 18hp motor, I will probably get a slightly larger engine pulley than what was in there. I got a nicer dash board from the junk yard & my switches mounted up.....

I the only missing parts at the moment are the air cleaner assy & might have to modify the exhaust, not sure yet.

swap is starting.... first two issues are the exhaust needs a notch in the front frame... and the oil drain, needs to be reconfigured... hopefully i can use a pipe wrench to loosen it or something...

I got the side tins off ebay so i think ill be good with the cooling, just need a exhaust shroud...

Dream big, custom exhaust! It doesn't have to be anything complicated, but I would do that before I cut a frame.
